Ingredients

    I rinse off the can of tuna in a strainer with cold water to help reduce the soduim.

    I use a big can of tuna. My family loves tuna & a little 6 oz can doesnt last long lol

    I also use a whole pound of whole wheat pasta & double the recipe for the roux.

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350F.
2.Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente. Drain water.
3.Combine margarine and flour to make a roux. Cook in a medium saucepan over low heat for 5 minutes.
4.To roux, add milk, pepper, and cheese. Cook for 5 minutes, until sauce is smooth.
5.Combine pasta, tuna, and sauce in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with paprika, and bake for 20 minutes.
